New Women’s Only Mountain Experiences developed in a new partnership between Alala Women’s Mountain Adventures and Yamnuska Inc.

June 9, 2004 ALBERTA – Canada’s leading mountain school for over 20 years, Yamnuska Inc. has partnered with Alala Women’s Mountain Adventures to provide exciting women’s specific programs for 2004. These courses are designed to inspire women to a greater sense of self-sufficiency and self esteem in the mountains by fostering positive learning environments. All of the courses are taught by accomplished and certified female guides who are committed to the advancement of women in all aspects of mountaineering. The programs bring together women from all over the world to enjoy a wide array of all-women mountain adventures in the Canadian Rockies and beyond. “Women thrive in all-female learning environments and are more likely to take a lead role, more responsibility, and thus walk away feeling like they have really achieved something on their own merit,” said Abby Watkins, the Women’s Program Co-Director. “I am very excited about our new partnership. The programs aim to provide a high caliber of instruction and experience to all levels of mountain adventurer,” said David Begg, Director of Yamnuska Inc. Mountain activities for the summer include; rock climbing, mountaineering, alpine and ice climbing.
